Giving promoters just what they’re looking for: a convenient arena located near four major metropolitan areas, and consistent crowds – the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center has put itself squarely on the map of hot places to put on a show.
An easy two or three hour drive from Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Norfolk, the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center has proven to be a haven for promoters looking to squeeze in an extra date while touring the Mid-Atlantic region. Salisbury is a magnet for the surrounding areas – it’s the largest “urbanized” area on the Delmarva Peninsula, and is the cultural hub for the region.
The Wicomico Youth & Civic Center’s proven ability to draw crowds – and satisfy its ticket-buying supporters – is based on one thing: getting great entertainment in the arena. The list of performers who have performed here is as impressive as it is diverse and includes: Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Prince, Alabama, George Strait, Alan Jackson, Patti La Belle, Kenny Chesney, Alison Krauss, ZZ Top, Trace Adkins, Miranda Lambert and more.
The Wicomico Youth & Civic Center is not just for concerts though, it has proven to be a successful venue for many touring shows and events, with an equally impressive list of names to show for it: Broadway in Salisbury, Disney on Ice, Sesame Street Live, The Harlem Globetrotters, Monster Trucks and The Lone Star Rodeo.
The “promoter friendly” atmosphere at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center is something the professionals on staff take great pride in. Reasonable rates for service, equipment and labor have helped make this a “profit friendly” arena as well. The facility also offers a full service marketing department to take care of all your advertising and promotional details.
Add it all up and you’ve got a versatile arena, 5600 seats strong, ready to handle any act, and more importantly, ready to put people in the seats.
